      Traverse City man killed in rollover crash

      A Traverse City man is dead after crashing into an Elmers truck.

      It happened Tuesday around 5:15 p.m. on U.S. 31 North near Five Mile Road in Grand Traverse County.

      Investigators say Joseph Abram Canavan, 36, was driving a pickup truck northbound when he lost control and crossed the center line. The pickup was hit by an Elmers pumper truck heading in the opposite direction.

      The pickup rolled over, ejecting Canavan. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

      The 22-year-old Kewadin man driving the Elmers truck was not hurt.

      The crash is still under investigation.

      The Grand Traverse Sheriff's Office would like to remind drivers that in light of the weather conditions, you should turn on your headlights, drive slowly and give yourself room to stop and break gently.
